I didn't want to do two posts today, but I realized that I have a reputation for dropping projects, and with how long this is taking me, I'm sure people are starting to wonder if I've given up.
The purpose of this update is to tell you that I haven't. In fact, I'm not even taking a break from it. I've got all the material cut out and my sewing machine has been ready and waiting to sew for days, now. I'm just a little caught up on making one of these:
Once the dress form is complete, I'll be able to fit my mocap suit, and start sewing. Once I have my suit in order, I'll start making markers for it. When I have the suit complete, I'll start working on the best, cheapest solutions to actually collecting the motion data, and once I have all that figured out, I'll post my finished plans in full.
Why am I withholding my steps/plans if I plan on releasing it for free? Because I don't want people following along step-by-step in case I fuck up. I'll suffer the cost of trial and error so you don't have to. I blow the money making mistakes to save you from wasting money following my mistakes.
If this has been something you're interested in, stay tuned. I may be taking a while, but I'm gradually getting there.
